It was a Dark and Stormy Night .... cold too, last night.
Warm, Comfort Food was required, so I made a Fisherman's Pie:

A great new Weight-Watchers recipe -
Delicious, and it reminded me of similar Fish Pies enjoyed in pubs in England
on wet cold days.
Culinary Memories: The Duke of Cumberland Pub, Barham, near Canterbury.

The jasmine is suddenly growing wild around here. 
Funny how you don't notice it for about 11 months,
 then one day you look out and see this:
Jasmine all over the fence..

Jasmine going all tropical and climbing palm trees ...

Jasmine attempting escape by climbing over a neighbour's tree...

My mother kept this little piece of velvet animal print in her fabric stash
 for nearly 50 years ("It might come in handy one day").
Well, the cushion mania struck again this week, so here it is,
enjoying life on the Outside.

Then this bird emerged, too.

Are you going to the Henri Cartier Bresson exhibition at QAG?  

Me too.

  1. Jasmine is murder for my hayfever Patricia which saddens me because I'd love to grow it around the house. The cushions are gorgeous, Mums' always know best!
    The exhibition sounds fabulous.
